This is my first BB.I just came from WM 6.1 where you can choose to use the phone memory or storage card as the destination for a download or document, etc. I don't see this choice on my 9700.Does the phone automatically use the storage card or is there a way to manually determine what gets added to it? Also, how can you read what is stored on the card while it is in the phone?
I am trying to add iTunes Music into my Bold's internal memory because I don't have a media card (micro sd) yet. When opening the Pocketmac and clicking on the iTunes tab, it won't allow me to sync unless I have a media card. Does anyone know how to add music into it's internal 1 gig memory? Also, would SDHC cards work in the Bold or only Micro SD?
I was wondering if there is a way to improve the 128MB built-in memory for the BB applications. i have 2GB micro SD inserted and Im not using it except for storing videos adn music files. Is there a way to use the Mcro SD memory for the application or the 1GB memory on the bold which I NEVER USE at all as I'm running out of memory when I download new applications on my Bold.
When I upgraded my 9630 to my new bold 9650 I had a 16gb micro sd card in the 9630. I copied all of the files from my card to my computer, put the 16gb card in my 9650 and formatted the card. I then copied all of the files from my computer back to the sd card and put the card back in the 9650. All seems to be ok, I have my pictures etc. When I go to connect my BB 9650 to my computer I get a message on the BB that says: "Content rights do not match this device. Please insert the media card back to the right device." this only happens if I have the memory option set to "Auto enable mass storage mode storage set to NO" Any ideas? Thank You
my BB bold 9700 just can't access to my memory card sudendly and I don't know why because everything works ok so far, until yesterday.yesterday I have access to all, music, photos...and today a friend calls me and the ring tone is differente and when I try to change it...no access to memory card, says that don't have none?!!!I try to take the battery off for 5 minutes, put the memory card in my Pc and works fine...I don't understand, it's like if my BB don't have any memory card in!
My phone (htc desire) kept saying low on phone storage and I assumed this meant the memory card (originally 4gb) so I purchased an 8gb sd card and put it in my phone, however the same message popped up low on phone storage. I now realise that its the memory storage thats low and not the sd card. Is there are way of moving my apps etc., on to the sd card rather than using the phone memory? If this isn't possible is there any other way of getting around the low phone storage problem?
I bought E51 two weeks back and today when I tested it with micro sd card, it gave an error "no memory card inserted". I tried with two brand new 2GB sandisk micro sd cards and not sure what is the problem. I also don't know how different is "2GB Micro Sd Secure Digital Memory Card MU-37 - Nokia" from other cards. Is there any prob with the cell?
Is anyone else experiencing problems downloading and running apps from the market due to low memory issues? Why did they only put 512MB of internal memory for app storage on this Epic when the AT&T galaxy version got 8GB of internal memory in addition to the 16GB micro Sd card??? My memory is full now, and without android 2.2 I can't move apps to the SD card. They should have provided all of their galaxy class phones with the 8GB internal memory.
I had a Bold 9700 and now have a Bold 9790...I switched my micro-sd card over to the 9790..and even though , in options, I have selected to save pictures to the media card whenever I take a picture it is saved on the camera and not the card..
I bought an 8 GB SD card for my BlackBerry because my Wall Street Journal application was using a lot of memory and in turn was causing my e-mail history to get purged quicker than I wanted it to.It seems, however, that the SD card can only be used for additional file storage? So now I have my device memory filled up, and 8 GB of storage sitting unused.Neither the WSJ app nor BlackBerry's e-mail application have an explicit setting to use the SD storage, so I don't know how to tell them to use the tons of extra storage instead of fighting over the device memory.
I had an 8 GB micro SD card. I'm running v22.214.171.124 on my Bold.I had a device (same as above) but the volume up stopped working so I got a "new" device (refurb). I put the micro SD card in the Bold and it's not being recognized.Options/Memory says "A media card is not presently inserted in the device". which is not true. I'm wondering if this is a case of a bad refurb?Perhaps the micro sd card can't be used on another device (Bold B) once it's formatted for Bold A?
New E51 isn't see the 2GB micro SD card, it's answer: "memory card is not inserted".Help, pls, what I have to do?
Issues with google music not recognizing music stored on their sd card, if their phone already has internal storage, but I have noticed on my HTC Amaze that google music will only recognize the music on the internal storage and not all of the songs I had on my micro sd. Is it possible to modify google music to read or find music from more than one location on your phone? PS I have more music than what would fit on the the phones storage so moving songs from micro SD to the phones internal storage would not be an option.
I have a Blackberry Bold with a 1 GB MicroSD card that worked perfectly with my old Curve 8310. I would plug the BB in with a USB cable and voila, a drive letter would pop up and I could easily move files. With this Bold and using the the same (or any other) SD Card, nothing happens. Although the Desktop Manager and Device Manager software recognizes the BB and everything else works fine, the SD Card does not appear in Windows Disk Manager, or as a drive letter in the My Computer view, or in any software. No computer recognizes it. I am forced to conclude that something is wrong with my refurbished Bold. I have tried changing the drive letters of other drives to make room for it, and I have tried updating drivers and reinstalling the software and I have tried all the various settings under Memory on the BB. My BB recognizes the SD card and I can use the SD card, but no computer will recognize it when it is plugged with via USB.
I have a BB Pearl running 4.2.2 and purchased a 2GB SD card for the purpose of adding music files.I have downloaded Roxio Media Manager to PC and uploaded to BB no problem, however Roxio will not read my SD card.You can see the available storage on the BB but Roxio is not seeing the media card at all when you launch the Media Manager.I have 2 SD cards (128MB and 2GB) and I have reformatted both and also checked Mass Storage settings but to no avail.
I have a BB Pearl 8130 and downloaded some ringtones from here. I did not have a micro SD card at that time, but I just bought one this week. I want to transfer the ringtones from the phone's internal memory to the micro SD card now, but I can't figure out how. It allows me to transfer pictures though, just not an option for transferring ringtones.
What is the largest micro sd card the bold will take? 16g?
I bought a Sandisk 16 gb micro sd card for my ICS tablet (Micromax Funbook) and inserted it. I go to settings > Storage And it is visible there. But whenever i install/move my apps to sd card it gets to internal sd card not external i.e 16 gb and my memory fills up ...
As I use my bold 9790, it keeps saying that my applications storage memory is 512 MB although the phone's internal memory is 8 GB! So is there anyway to increase that limited storage space for apps?? Also, does that space increase if I use an external micro SD memory?
I have a Pearl, doesn't connect to PC, no internet. My brother is letting me use his Curve to transfer a theme to my Pearl. Now basically, i need to know how and where to transfer the Pearl theme to (while the curve is plugged in, and the pearl's micro sd is in it) then remove the SD card and put the SD card it in the pearl, then locate the theme. When i open the folders for the micro SD card on the computer,(while in the curve) i see no folder for apps or themes. I transfer the alx and cod file into every folder there but i can't find it when i put the micro sd back in my pearl The next thing ive tried was installing it as an app thru BB manager, it said it transferred ok, but i cant find it on the micro sd card (do they go right to the curves own memory maybe??)
We put in a micro SD card 8GB. It was inserted correctly. However, when we access Memory under Options, Media Card Support says "Off." And Mass Storage Mode Says "Off." We formatted the micro SD card, and we removed the battery to re-boot the computer. How do we: 1) get the Media Card Support and Media Support to both read "ON"? 2) get the Bold to save things on the Media Card? and 3) find out available memory on the card?
I just purchased a new 8GB micro SD card for my Optimus L9, the intention was to allow me to move my current apps from my internal storage to the SD card, and download new apps to the SD card. I have tried the strategy of clicking on an apps setting and clicking the button that should be halfway down the page that allows me to move it from the internal storage to the SD card, but the button, for any of my apps, does not appear. It's not like its there and I cant click it, its really not even there.
Can anyone recommend an app for displaying how much storage is used and left on both the phones internal memory and the SD card?
Can you send email your email to the BlackJack's (original BlackJack) micro-SD card instead of internal memory when you retrieve email from Outlook?
all of a sudden i noticed after reviewing a pic i had just taken that my other pics were gone. I went to my options/ memory/ says "memory card not currently inserted in device". I can read the card find in an sd card reader attached to my computer but phone suddenly doesn't recognize. any ideas? tried battery pull, nothing I have saved my files on the computer and reformatted then put back nothing.I have blackberry bold 9700
I need to know how can I transfer or move applications from device to memory card in BB 9700.
Got a new Blackberry Bold and love it. However, I've checked all the "Help", including the online Blackberry User's Manual on how to check the amount of memory and storage card space available. They all tell me to select the "Options" icon, but I don't have an "Options" icon. since I removed a 2g micro card and inserted a 4g micro card, but my computer says there's only 2g there. I can't check it on my phone since I don't have an "Options" icon.
I just recently bought a 16gb Micro SD memory card online, but it doesn't work. I put it into my phone and it says to format and I format and everything. After formatting is complete, I connect my phone to my computer so I can sync it with my itunes. The problem occurs as soon as it gets done syncing. After it's done syncing and I disconnect my from computer, the "format memory card" message comes up again. If I say no, none of the music comes to my phone. Then I go to option > memory and then it says memory card is not readable. It has to be formatted because it might be corrupted.If I select yes to format it, all the data that I just synced erases and I'm back to the beginning. This happens every single time I do it. However, one thing I notice was when I stop the syncing halfway through, the memory card works. But if I let it sync all 600 songs (which is about 5-6 gb out of 16), the memory card fails.can anyone help me? Maybe someone had a problem like this and found a solution. Appreciate all the help I receive. BTW, I'm using the Bold 9700 for tmobile.
i have been unable to move/install apps to my sd card ever since changing to MIUI I'm not sure whether this is a problem with the ROM or not (i think i may have insalled applications to SD on a previous GB version of MIUI) I am using a rooted Samsung Galaxy S2 I9100 with the latest MIUI based on 4.0.4. before MIUI i was on CM7 stable and i remember messing around with some settings there to try and get my phone to read music off the sd card as well as internal memory-(where all my downloaded music was going). I also may have done a dodgy partition on my old 32gb micro sd or some how partitioned my internal storage of my phone... I have recently successfully partitioned my Sandisk 64gb micro SDXC to this tutorial... [URL]... when i go to move a 'moveable' app eg. Paypal through 'Link2Sd' it comes up with an error saying "pkg:/data/app/com.paypal.android.p2pmobile-1.apk Failure [INSTALL_FAILED_CONTAINER_ERROR] when i go to move a 'moveable' app through 'App 2 SD Pro' it says 'couldn't move app' the following are my phones storage details...this last picture was taken before i partitioned my SD
I have XOLO Q1000 a budget phone however since i am found of playing games so 2 gb internal memory on the phone is low. How i can move the applications to sd card My phone has phone storage and internal storage and i can insert a sd card i can move apps between phone and internal storage but not to sd card. how i should move it to sd card

I recently got an 8310 after having the 8700c for a few years, so this is my first time using a memory card with my blackberry. I have a placed a 2gb micro sd card in the memory, and when I check memory available on the BB, it says there is 1.8GB free space. When I connect to the computer by USB and I turn on the mass storage mode, i can not access the sc card. The drive is not showing up in windows explorer and when using the BB desktop, it only finds the internal memory.
Since upgrading my Bold last week 126.96.36.1997 I have not been able to view my memory card in windows or Desktop Manager 188.8.131.52. In the past the memory card appears in the Windows Device Manager as a USB Mass Storage Device and now it does not. It does not appear in the Windows Storage Manager either.I went so far as to reformat my card and double checked that mass storage is turned on and that media card support is turned on. I can access the card by removing it from the Bold and inserting it in to a memory card reader. Otherwise the card works correctly inside the Bold. I also updated the USB driver or at least verified that it is the one in the BB common folder.
I have a 64GB microSD in my Nokia 808 Belle FP2.. I recently went on vacation and after about 600 pictures taken, I got an error that my micro SD card memory was full, and it auto switched the save location to my mass memory.I have plenty of memory free on my micro SD card still.Is there a picture or file limit in the DCIM folder?
When I plug my tour in is doesn't mount the sd card or bb memory so I can't add or remove things from the sd card. On my storm it worked first time. My memory settings are set to mass storage on and connect on plug in. Have tried resetting mem settings with no luck. I do get and insufficient usb charge when plugged in to my laptop. Not sure if this is a contributing factor.
My BB Bold 9700 is getting slower and slower by the day.

I will be traveling in China this summer to view the solar eclipse on July 22nd, taking pictures with a Pansonic Lumix camera. It uses a standard SD memory card.I want to transfer pictures to my Blackberry Bold 9000 so I can then upload them to a blog. I will NOT have a computer with me. Is it possible to get an SD card reader that can plug into the USB jack in the Blackberry and transfer files directly into the Blackberry? If not, is there a bluetooth solution? Note, I have already tried taking the SDHD micro card out of my Blackberry, putting it into an adapter and inserting this into my Panasonic camera, hoping that I could store my pictures directly on the SDHD micro card. It doesn't work. The camera complains with a memory card error (probably due to an incompatibility between standard SD and SDHD, i would guess).
My new android 4.2.1 phone has 32GB of phone storage, but only 1.5 gigabytes of that is allocated to the "internal storage" partition for app installations etc. The rest is used as an internal SD card for data storage. I also have an actual SD Card of 32GB. I find the 1.5GB of internal storage a little bit too low and I fear to run out of memory in a few months of intensive use. As I have a large external SD card it is a bit useless for me to also have a huge internal SD card partition and I'd rather add some of that to the 1.5GB of internal storage for apps. I have googled for quite some time now, but I can only find threads of people trying to extend their internal storage by partitioning an external SD card. This is NOT the same as my problem as my phone storage is large enough but just not properly allocated in my view. So my question is as follows: is it possible to add a few GB's from my phone storage to my internal storage?
Whats using so much ram and external sd card memory? Internal memory has little space utilized. Is there a way to control this? A larger SD card maybe more ram galaxy S vibrant ram 205/350mb STORAGE program 190mb/1.87gb personal data 10mb/127mb internal memory 80mb/12gb ext SD card 1.5gb/1.84gb
For some reason my Incredible won't mount both the internal phone storage and the SD card storage at the same time. What I mean is...when I plug my phone into my PC I only get a single popup asking to mount the phone's SD card storage, but not the internal phone storage.If I remove the SD card (or unmount the SD card using menus on the phone) and then toggle the connection type from Disk Drive, to Charge only, and then back to Disk Drive (to burp the connection), the internal phone storage will mount, but the SD card won't mount because it has been removed.When I connect my wife's incredible, my computer sees both the SD card storage and the internal storage (as expected) and gives me prompts for both. I took the SD card from the problematic phone and put it in the "good" phone and there are no issues at all (IE.. both the internal storage and SD storage mount). This of course means there is no issue with the SD card.
I have a Curve 8320 with a 4-Gb SanDisk micro SD card. Due to difficulties installing BlackBerry Media Sync, I'm trying to just manage my media (music, no photos or videos at the moment) simply by using my BlackBerry as a mass-storage device. I understand that when I connect the BlackBerry to the computer with the micro SD card in it, the BlackBerry is supposed to prompt me to enable mass-storage mode. However, this is not happening. I can't get the BlackBerry to appear as a mass-storage device in the Computer folder on my PC. I can tell the BlackBerry is indeed interfacing with the computer, for Desktop Manager is able to interact with it. I've gone into the Media Card option in Options and enabled media-card support and mass-storage mode and told the BlackBerry to auto-enable mass-storage mode when connected, and I've formatted the card with the BlackBerry as well.
I have a Google I/O phone which came with the original 2 GB micro SD card. I would like to get a larger capacity card and while shopping for it I noticed that some of them are just micro SD and some are micro SDHC. The user manual I downloaded from the HTC website has not specification on the type of SD card that are supported. Can someone tell me if the phone I have works with both types or can I only use micro SD card?
I am a new Blackberry Bold 9000 owner. Can someone advise if the card slot with take SDHD Micro cards as well as SD Micro cards? Are any of these cards (brands) preferable or alternatively are any cards incompatible or cause problems? I am looking at using an 8GB or 16GB SDHD card by manufacturer such as Sandisc etc
I've noticed since switching from a storm to 9700 that i don't see a drive for device memory and for the memory card. i am only able to access the memory card with mass storage mode enabled.does the 9700 not support pushing out the device memory to my computer?
I have recently purchased a 16GB Micro SD Card for my Nokia 5800, and I am having problems when trying to put music on. I noticed that my 8GB SD card is in different folders, and have tried copying them onto the 16GB SD card but the phone doesn't recognise any of it. Is there any specific way to expand my phones memory using an SD card to enable me to add music.
I have used partitions on my old rooted phone where I thought the sd card had crashed because of partitioning it. Now I have removed the partition and I am still getting problems. Then I formatted my whole micro sd card using windows. Whenever I insert my sd card into windows via my phone, it asks me to format it. Why has micro sd partitioning wrecked my sd card???!!
I'm getting a "Low on Space" Icon but when I check my "SD Card and Phone Storage" it seems I have plenty of space left or am I just reading it wrong? Does "Available Space" not mean, the space I have left to work with?

So my bold 9700 began to re-boot itself and the bar started to load, reached about three quarters and wont go any further. I tried everything from charging the phone, removing the battery for hours, removing the micro sd card, but it still continues to load to a certain point and sticks. I've tried everything over and over but nothing different happens.
My memory card worked fine until my stupid phone decided it dosent want to see it anymore. Now my BB wont recognize it at all; there is no option to format it although it already was formatted and working fine. I have turrned the card option on and off, power cycled the phone, pulled the battery, and multiple combos of all, ect and it will not recognize the card.I know the card works I can read it on my computer with an adapter.Before this happened Desktop Manager kept wanting to install the same update every time I connected it and seemed squirly so I updated it to 4.7 and it then updated my device and stopped asking me to do it over and over however now the memory card does not work.Any ideas?I use it for work and HAVE to be able to use the memory card.I have tried another micro sd that I also know works and its the same thing.

I have a MTK device, and the storage is like that : - ROM storage ( 515 Mb ) - Internal storage ( 825 Mb ) - SD interne storage ( 2.37 Gb ) - SD Externe storage ( it's my own sd card, my 8Gb insered sd card ) As you can see, there is a " internal sd card " that i can't remove at all ( it's like a 2nd internal storage ) But i have a lot of apps and sometimes this apps have a huge data ( like a couple of game or my GPS app ) So my problem is that when i move my applications to the SDcard, they go into the internal sdcard, but i would like to move them to the external sd card.
I'm using a Blu Tank 4.5 running Android 4.1.1 Everything (apps, email, txts, etc) all file to the internal phone memory even though, on the settings page, (Settings/Storage/Phone Storage) I have highlighted the SD Card button. The SD card is recognised by the phone and reports 29.57 GB available. I want data to file to the SD card.
I have a Bold 9900. A few weeks before I bought this phone a had a curve. I had a 32gb Micro SD memory card in. I had about 200 pics which I had transfered from my PC to my memory card in my curve and all the pictures show in the picture libary. But when I put the same Micro SD card in my new Bold 9900, all the music is in there but no pictures in the library? Or anywhere. Funny thing is, when I connect my phone to my pc and click on the memery card icon in my computer, its showing all the picture files?
I have been searching for information about this topic for a little while, and I cannot seem to find an answer.To start, my eris is coming in the mail on wednesday, and I am trying to get everything ready for its arrival.I know the Eris takes a microSD card (seeing as it ships with it), however I hear people talking about using a c6 standard SD card in their eris.So, my question is, does the eris take both micro sd cards (ie 2 slots) or does it take an SD card and the micro SD uses an adapter to fit?
All of a sudden my phone doesnt see my micro sd card. When I first installed the 4gb card it worked fine. I watched videos on it, played mp3's etc. Now it keeps saying to "Insert a memory card for connecting Mass Storage". I havent changed any settings on the phone.
I have not installed anything, not even an OTA update (except PRL update) and this is what it says for SD card and Internal Storage space. It comes with 1GB internal storage, so the base OS and TouchWiz used over half of the internal storage already along with over 1GB of the sd card? sd card total space: 14.73GB sd card available space: 14.73GB internal storage available space: 465MB
i am user of bold 9780, like other, i also facing the reboot problem by the time i download or upgrade the sofware in my BB, everytime im reboot it come out this noted : "Media card storage cannot be accessed due to fatal errors" and of course my SD card is contain nothing becoz of this error, so many time i reboot till the word not came out.how i want to resolve this problem n im getting phobia to downloading/upgrading n rebooting my BB.
I just got my BB Bold 9700 last week. I used the BB Desktop manager to copy some Word and Excel documents from my laptop to the media card on my 9700. That worked fine. However, when I try to open them on the 9700, I get the following message: when entering a remote share: //host/share as a minimum, optionally add [/folder [/ folder ...]][filename] Could someone please show me an example of what they mean and how to do it?
I have just installed a Micro SD memory card in my E63, formatted it and it is showing almost 4GB free. But whenever I try to save data it just fills up my phone memory. Is there some extra step to get data to save on the card? It doesn't seem to be a problem with the card itself, as I successfully moved images there using "organize". And how do I move music files from phone memory to memory card, as there is no "organize" option ?
How many storage units Android OS have? Including a possible microSD external Card. Internal Storage, internal memory?! Whats the difference and location in file system folders? When an app is installed from market where does it go? In application manager, in most apps there is an option "Move to SD card"... If I have an external micro SD Card and choose this apps option "Move to SD card" where the heck is suppose to going the app or some part of it? (Data? Apk? Cache?) It's not in external microSD Card! So what is "Move to SD Card".
I am looking for some help on getting access to media that was encrypted on the 128MD micro SD card that came with my original BB Curve (qwerty).Some time back my original BB was damaged and my company's internal IT dept gave me a temporary Curve BB (azerty). That BB came with an SD card which I replaced with my original SD card. When my new BB Curve (qwerty) got in, I handed over the temporary one (azerty) and kept my original micro SD card. Now I need to access the content of that micro SD card and am having a hard time doing so. I can't remember if the original micro SD card was only encrypted with a password or a device key as well. I have tried to use what I think the encryption key was on the micro SD I need to access by use of the new BB Curve (qwerty). I get my 5 try's then remove and re-insert the micro SD card. All this to no avail. Now, the content is very important to me and I am willing to go through any formal process to get at the content. Can anyone tell me how to reach someone at RIM (BlackBerry) to discuss this, or if there is any legal way of getting at the content. (I can confirm the content before it is decrypted). The issues I have here are: 1) not sure if the card was encrypted with a password and a device key (in which case I have a further dilemma in that the original device (BB Curve qwerty) has been retired and is no longer available for use) or just a password. Is there a way to find this out? 2) Because I use so many different passwords on all the devices I have to use, I am not even sure I am trying the right one for this micro SD card. Plus having gone from a qwerty to azerty, then back to a qwerty keyboard, I am not sure I am using the right password to decrypt. I am however able to provide the full password if given the 1st character of the encryption password. I am not looking to do anything illegal but truly need to access the encrypted content. As such I am reaching out to the community and looking for any help available such as contact at RIM, formal process to decrypt, hints, clues. Anything to move this forward.
I have a Sero 7 Pro that has a 32GB micro SD card. I would like to take it with me to the deer lease so I can back up all my trail cam pics to the 32GB card. So I got a micro USB to female USB adapter. Plugged a 16GB SD card into a card reader and plugged it into my adapter. The Sero 7 will not see the memory card at all. I have tried all the free usb mount apps and usb mass storage apps on Google play. I even rooted my tablet last night and it still won't see the memory card or my Verbatim flash drive (all formatted as FAT32).
WTF, I'm getting a warning that I'm low on space, phone storage is getting low. However, according to the SD card & Phone Storage info I can pull up on my phone, I'm only using the following: SD card Total space: 3.69 GB Available space: 2.67 GB Internal Phone Storage Total Space 6.60 GB Available space: 6.06 GB Phone memory Total space: 748 MB Available space: 636 MB So all in all to me it looks like I should have plenty of space.
I have a GSM lg shine 8700, every time I go to transfer music over to the SD card (4 gig kingston micro sd card) i goto tools ->usb mass storage drive h: shows up in my computer, then dissapears then I'm prompted that there is a slow write error. i close and reload the usb mass storage menu it shows up again i can now go into the folder, the folders are all there music sounds etc. i copy a file into a folder the phone suddenly reboots out of nowhere.can anybody tell me what i'm doing wrong? Then for clarification I take the sd card out and put it in my computer card reader and it won't even recognize the card..i pop the micro sd card out it's like "place a disc in drive h to continue!"
A long time ago I had edited a file that is read on boot, in that file is written which one of the two 'partition' has to be mounted as what. Basically, my 32GB microsd is seen as the internal memory of the device (which would be 12 GB), and the other one as micro sd. The result is that most application would go to the microsd by default, using thus 32GB for apps instead of 12GB. This is because my microsd is failing. Changed with a new one, and now it is failing again. I suppose my phone has become a 'micro sd destroyer'. Cannot do anything about it, so better to use the internal memory instead of the card for main use..... So how do I switch back to normal mounting (micro sd as micro sd and internal memory as internal memory and not switched up) ?
My son gave me a memory card for my 8900. An 8 mb micro SDHC and it does not seem to fit. Don't know if I am doing something wrong with the inserting. Is there a difference between micro SD and micro SDHC? I am thinking the 8900 should be micro SD as noted in the manual.
I purchased a card from Amazon last week. I haen't received update yet. The card came with a micro and SD adapter included. Do I need the micro adapter to install the small micro memory card? How do I install the card? Do I have to format it on my PC before installing on Xoom?
I have a Bold 9000 and I can't connect it to the computer to use it as USB Folder...When I connect the BB via USB, it does not prompt to use it as USB folder.I installed the Desktop Manager and it recognizes the BB via USB, but cannot access it as a Folder. In Options> Memory Menu I have the following: Media Support Card : ON Encryption Mode: None Mass Storage Mode: ON Enable Mass Storage when connected: Prompt ( I also tried ON) I have Windows Vista SP1 32-bit in my computer.I tried downloading the USB Drivers again, but it did not work.
I install blink on my galaxy S and now they show me a message saying that I only have 14% of memory free.. It's possible install app in SD Card? If not, what we can use on SD ? I don't understand the 3 types of memory that appears me.. Internal SD card show me 5.76 free sd card 1.83 free and internal phone storage 1.68free Can anybody explain me this please?
An interesting problem:I have a new Blackbery Bold 9000 on Orange UK which doesn't work in mass storage mode.I have connected it through USB on three different windows machines including xp professional and vista.I have tried solutions to similar problems as posted on this forum, but without luck.When I plug it in the screen shows the clock for two seconds then returns to the main menu. No new discs appear in windows explorer or other file management tools. I can access both the micro SD (16gb and 1 gb both work) and the device memory through Roxio media manager (although it's slow). I have tried changing the mapping names of existing drives. memory options are set to: media card support ON Encryption Mode NONE. Mass Storage Mode Support ON Auto Enable Mass Storage Mode When Connected YES and PROMPT (tried both). I am running OS 22.214.171.124 (platform 126.96.36.199), and I have tried rebooting both machines and device. I have tried using mass storage both with Blackberry apps running and with no Blackberry apps running on the desktops.
I wish to find out what is the biggest memory the bold can take for the SD card slot pls? The reason why I asked is that I am aware that there are cerain PDAs can only take up to a certain max storage size of SD card, if not it will crash the PDA.
A couple weeks ago I updated my Bold 9700 to OS 6.0 Bundle 1964 - v188.8.131.521. So far, I love it except that my camera was at first quite flakey and now will not work at all. I'm geting black screen, or gives me the error 'could not start the camera. Close other applications and try opening the camera again'. The video Camera does the same; loads with grey screen and errors with 'Cannot start video camera viewfinder'. So Far I have: -deleted all apps shown in BB App World (Wondering if another app was trying to use Camera) -removed the battery to reboot multiple times -Reseated my SD card - I can view SD card through phone for picture/music so it does work -Re-installed OS6 through Desktop software (Update my device -> View other versions -> Install) -Rolling back to 5.0.0.xxx -Chang the camera in tech store. Carrier: Pelephone (Israel) Bold 9700 OS V184.108.40.2060 Free Space 69.6 MB / internal 1.6 GB Media Card.
I'm making a partition on my (clean) micro SD card to use to increase my phone's internal storage. The intent was to go from 200 or so MB to 8 GB, because some apps can't be moved to the SD card and must be on the phone's storage. My question is, can I give the partition a certain format (FAT, FAT32, NTFS, EXT2, EXT3, Unformatted, etc.) and have it work, or is there more I need to do?
I have I think a 16GB Micro SD card. But I can't seem to be able to use it. I can't save nothing on it, and when I installed this app Astro, a file manager, I still couldn't do nothing with it. My apps are saved to my phone, and the pictures I take with my phone and the videos are also saved into my phone. Only songs are saved into my SD card. Am I doing something wrong? or is the Micro SD card only made for songs, and not the pictures and the videos and the apps? I have an app to back up my information called m:IQ, and there it says I used up 46% phone memory, and only 2% of the Storage card. So can anybody tell me what's wrong exactly?
I have this Bold 9900 for about half a year, first few month the Media card was that I transferred from my old BB was working fine, then without physical damage of the phone the "Media Card Storage can not be accessed due to fatal errors" msg started occurring during the charge and on/off. I bought a new 32GB SD card, the problem still exists, I check both cards on other devices, they both work fine.
I installed an 8GB Sandisk SDHD card in my Bold. The Bold doesn't recognized the additional memory and it won't format the card.In MS Windows I can see and format the memory card. Using Roxio on Desktop Manager, I can load files onto the memory card and onto device memory. However, I am unable to find the files loaded onto the memory card, which the device doesnt recognize. 1. why is the Bold not recognizing the memory card? 2. if I can see the memory card and move files to it from MS Window, why can't I see the files on the BB? I'm very green to the BB world.
IT Policy for "security" reasons. Kind of ticks me off since this is my own device, but using it so I don't have to carry 2 BB's. Encryption set to on, locked. No mass storage mode, locked.Anyway, can anyone tell me where on the device the stock "folder" icons are? I would like to replace them with some that are more elegant.And since no mass storage mode when i connect to computer, how do I move them from the SD card to device memory?
I notice a new type of storage is introduced called USB Storage. I expect this is the equivalent of the internal SD card of the old SGS. Now when I click on the "Move to SD" button on any of the apps, I get the message "Failed to move application: Not enough memory" My USB storage currently has 11.42GB. So can onyone shed light as to where I am going wrong here? And what is the logic of Samsung changing internal SD storage into USB Storage?
I'm trying to get music onto my bb bold 9700 and each time I try, it tells me that I need to switch my mass storage mode on. I've checked in Options / Memory and it is already switched on, so I don't know what the problem is.Can anyone suggest what else the problem could be to prevent me from downloading music if the settings are already ok?
My friend just purchased a Bold 9700. I am going to install a 16GB micro SD card for him. The transfer rate is SO slow and I basically want to fill up the card with music and videos. To put on 10Gb seems like it's gonna take over an hour!! Maybe even two!! Ridiculous!!Would it be possible for me to load up all the music/videos onto the card at my house, then just pop the SD card into his phone with all the media pre-loaded? Or would it not work? Also, just a side question, but if I fill up the majority of the card (let's say I leave about 1 or 2GB free), would it affect overall general speed of the phone, or is that not affected by the SD capacity?
But let's be honest. The biggest vices of the Bold is the fact app memory is low compared to the newer phones and the camera. However, most people can live with the camera, but the app memory becomes a huge problem. Well if RIM allows SD Card storage or device memory storage, would most of you still think about upgrading to an Onyx or something? I mean I have nearly 1 gig in device memory and a 16 gb sd card in right now and if apps are allowed to be stored on them, it removes a huge hassle of the Bold.
I'm looking forward to upgrade to Bold 9700 from Pearl 8120 (outdated, but still in excellent condition) I need some explanation about how the memory works in Bold 9700 plz! As I have been reading on BlackBerry website, there are two separate memory banks. When you do the comparing of the 9700 and 9000, it shows that onboard memory for 9000 is 1GB, and for 9700 is 256MB. The Flash memory for the 9000 is 128MB, and for 9700 is 256MB. I was wondering if that 256MB for the 9700 is the total memory of the phone (flash + onboard), or it has a total memory of 512MB? Another thing I noticed when I was surfing their website that it says in features -> expandable memory "Enhance the 256 MB of on-board flash memory by easily inserting a microSD card. Create extra room for emails, messages, apps, multimedia files, documents and all the other important things that you want to take with you."
My Sandisc 64GB SD card went kaputt last week, it froze at 33GB, luckily the existing files are all ok and I was able to copy all the files onto my PC, however nothing new can be written to it. I've tried formatting with no success. So I copied the files onto the PC and just got a new this time Samsung 64GB micro SD card. Problem I'm having now is that on several attempts it's failed to copy the files back to my SD card (from PC) I've formatted the card in the Note 3..the music files about 4 GB transferred just fine, the problem seems to be with the Pix and Videos. I'm currently trying to copy the DCIM folder back onto the micro sd and it's saying it'll take 6 hours. I have tried: copying from PC to micro SD in the phone via USB copying from PC to micro SD in SD card adapter plugged directly into PC copying from PC to micro SD in USB adapter plugged into PC all results the same
How to install applications to external SD-card (not to internal storage - media area) ?Many modern games and geomapping apps have up to 1Gb cache each stored in internal storage. I've bought 16Gb SD card but it almost completely useless, because I cannot store anything but music and videos.Internal 8Gb storage is almost full.I think the problem is that internal storage mounted as mntsdcard , and external SD-card as mntsdcard-ext so applications are installed to sdcard not sdcard-ext, thats why my external SD-card is empty while internal storage is full
I lost my bb bold 9700. Can I locate it using my pin? How can I lock it by remote or wipe my memory card?
